The Three Causes of Premature Aging by Maoshing Ni

There are three causes of premature aging: environmental toxins, exhaustion, and energy blockages. The great thing about meditation is that it can help you address all three.

For environmental toxins, your body’s best tool is proper breathing. Did you know that your body purges less than a third of its toxins with your elimination systems, and all the rest is from respiration? Meditation teaches you the skill of correct breathing.

To overcome exhaustion, I like to say, “sleep your way to 100.” Getting good sleep is important for your body’s ability to bounce back from sickness or stress. The meditation techniques in this program will help you improve the ease and quality of your sleep.

Your best ways to get rid of energy blockages are exercise and meditation. The harmonizing meditation I teach is a combination of these: it is a mind-body qigong practice to remove blockages from your energy channels and organ networks.
